London: Bank of England, 1996, cерия "Handbook of Central Banking", 26 с.
The key aim of monetary policy for most central banks is to keep inflation low and steady. However in a market-oriented economy, central banks cannot control inflation directly. They have to use instruments such as interest rates, the effects of which on the economy are uncertain. And they have to rely on incomplete information about the economy and its prospects. Some central banks use money growth or the exchange rate as intermediate targets to guide policy decisions. Others take a more eclectic approach and consider a range of factors. Monetary policy has occupied much time of the world’s most distinguished economists over the years. This Handbook provides an introductory overview to the subject. Following the introduction in Section 1, Section 2 describes the main costs of inflation. The next section provides an overview of the various routes by which monetary policy transmits through the economy. And Section 4 describes the alternative targets which central banks can use to guide policy. Some conclusions are provided in Section 5. The purpose of this Handbook is to assist monetary policy practitioners - those in central banks and governments who are advising and taking decisions on monetary policy. Those new to the subject may, it is hoped, find this a useful starting point for further reading and research. This handbook is also available in Russian and Spanish.

Arthur S. Goldberger
Cambridge, Mass: Harvard University Press, 2003
This is a textbook for the standard undergraduate econometrics course. Its only prerequisites are a semester course in statistics and one in differential calculus. Arthur Goldberger, an outstanding researcher and teacher of econometrics, views the subject as a tool of empirical inquiry rather than as a collection of arcane procedures. The central issue in such inquiry is how one variable is related to one or more others. Goldberger takes this to mean "How does the average value of one variable vary with one or more others?" and so takes the population conditional mean function as the target of empirical research. The structure of the book is similar to that of Goldberger's graduate-level textbook, A Course in Econometrics, but the new book is richer in empirical material, makes no use of matrix algebra, and is primarily discursive in style. A great strength is that it is both intuitive and formal, with ideas and methods building on one another until the text presents fairly complicated ideas and proofs that are often avoided in undergraduate econometrics. To help students master the tools of econometrics, Goldberger provides many theoretical and empirical exercises and, on an accompanying diskette, real micro-and macroeconomic data sets. The data sets deal with earnings and education, money demand, firm investment, stock prices, compensation and productivity, and the Phillips curve.

The modern approach of this text recognizes that econometrics has moved from a specialized mathematical description of economics to an applied interpretation based on empirical research techniques. It bridges the gap between the mechanics of econometrics and modern applications of econometrics by employing a systematic approach motivated by the major problems facing applied researchers today. Throughout the text, the emphasis on examples gives a concrete reality to economic relationships and allows treatment of interesting policy questions in a realistic and accessible framework.

Chris Brooks
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2001
This is the first textbook to teach introductory econometrics to finance majors. The text is data- and problem-driven, giving students the skills to estimate and interpret models, whilst having an intuitive grasp of the underlying theoretical concepts. The approach of Dr Brooks, based on the successful course he teaches at the ISMA Centre, one of Europe's leading finance schools, ensures that the text focuses squarely on the needs of finance students, including advice on planning and executing a project in empirical finance. The book assumes no prior knowledge of econometrics, and covers important modern topics such as time-series forecasting, volatility modelling, switching models and simulation methods. It includes detailed examples and case studies from the finance literature. Sample instructions and output from two popular and widely available computer packages (EViews and WinRATS) are presented as an integral part of the text. Extensive web-based supporting materials are available free of charge.

Introductory Econometrics with Applications, Fifth Edition, by Ramu Ramanathan, provides the perfect blend between econometric theory and hands-on practical training for a B.A., M.A., or M.B.A. course on econometrics that does not use matrix algebra.
The book is self-contained, with background information on mathematics, probability, and statistics, covered in Chapter 2 and later chapters so that students need not refer to their old notes or textbooks.
Practical applications are emphasized without sacrificing theoretical underpinnings. Numerous real-world examples walk the students through model specification, estimation, and hypothesis testing, using a logical step-by-step approach. Instead of showing only final polished results, the book shows intermediate failures and unexpected results, along with suggestions about how model specification and estimation can be improved by using diagnostic testing.
Annotated computer outputs are included in the text so that students can see exactly how econometric techniques are implemented in practice.
An entire chapter is devoted to the various steps involved in carrying out an empirical research project, namely, selection of a topic, literature review, model formulation, data gathering, estimation, hypothesis testing, and report writing. Because an empirical study is time-consuming and a student need not wait to read the whole book to start the project, suggestions are given in selected chapters so that the process is smooth and orderly and does not cause unnecessary delays.
94 data sets on real-world topics are available in the disk accompanying the text as well as on the Web page set up for the book. The data are in ASCII, B34S, EVIEWS, EXCEL, GRETL, PcGive, and SHAZAM formats so that a user can access them easily from a variety of well-known regression programs to reproduce the examples in the book and to carry out additional analyses.
Professor Allin Cottrell of Wake Forest University has graciously agreed to include a free open-source econometrics software package, GRETL (Gnu Regression, Econometric, and Time-series Library), in the disk that accompanies each copy of the book. Appendix C has more information on this program.

A three period overlapping generations model is developed to investigate the impact of shorter life expectancy due to disease, on human capital investment decisions and income growth. This research is particularly relevant to Sub-Saharan Africa given the dramatic reduction in life expectancy due to HIV/AIDS and the potential lasting effects on growth. Our results indicate that as life expectancy shortens so does schooling inducing a lower growth rate of income. These relationships are even more pronounced for the African continent than for the rest of the world.

This paper analyses empirically the effect of "hold-ups" on capital investment in farms using a sample of 318 Hungarian enterprises, surveyed over 1997. A negative relationship arises between capital investment and the incidence of hold-up behaviour. This relationship is affected by farm’s wealth and liquidity position, the quality of legal enforcement of contracts, by whether farms have contracted sales to foreign processors, and whether they are established as successors t pre-reform organisations rather than start-up businesses.

Capital Theory and Investment Behavior presents pioneering studies of the cost of capital as a determinant of investment expenditures. The cost of capital summarizes the future consequences of investment essential for current decisions. This concept has become an indispensible tool for studying the dynamics of investment behavior. Both macroeconome tric models and intertemporal general equilibrium models have employed the cost of capital as a determinant of short- and long-term investment expenditures.

Tax Policy and the Cost of Capital is devoted to the cost of capital approach to tax policy. This approach has supplied an important intellectual impetus for reforms of capital income taxation in the United States and around the world. Widespread applications of the cost of capital and the closely related concept of the marginal effective tax rate are due to the fact that these concepts facilitate the representation of economically relevant features of complex tax statutes in a highly succinct form.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the cost-of-capital approach for analyzing the economic impact of tax policy. This approach has provided an intellectual impetus for reforms of capital income taxation in the United States and around the world. The most dramatic example is the Tax Reform Act of 1986 in the United States. In this landmark legislation the income tax base was broadened by wholesale elimination of tax preferences for both individuals and corporations. Revenues generated by base broadening were used to finance sharp reductions in tax rates at corporate and individual levels.

The cost-of-capital approach presented in this book shows that important opportunities for tax reform still remain. This approach suggests two avenues for reform. One would retain the income tax base of the existing U.S. tax system, but would equalize tax burdens on all forms of assets as well as average and marginal rates on labor income. Elimination of differences in the tax treatment of all forms of assets would produce gains in efficiency comparable to those from the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Equalization of marginal and average tax rates on labor income would more than double these gains in efficiency. Proposals to replace income by consumption as a tax base were revived in the United States during the 1990's. The Hall-Rabushka Flat Tax proposal would produce efficiency gains comparable to those from equalizing tax burdens on all forms of assets under the income tax. However, a progressive National Retail Sales Tax, collected on personal consumption expenditures at the retail level, would generate gains in efficiency exceeding those from the Flat Tax by more than 50 percent! Equalizing marginal and average rates of taxation on consumption would double the gains from the Flat Tax.

This paper shows that imperfections in the credit market and insecurity of property rights affect nonuniformly the investment of younger and established microenterprises in Russia. The empirical analysis of investment is based on the liquidity constraint model but also accounts for the added challenged that the weak institutional structure and the small size of the enterprises pose. Investment in younger firms is most constrained by the availability of funds, while investment in more established microenterprises is affected by the ability of the entrepreneurs to “secure” their property rights by paying bribes. Financial institutions are unable to distinguish good from bad borrowers but lend to firms that have transparent transactions.

Designed for undergraduate and graduate courses in Investments, this book provides a solid theoretical framework around which to build practical knowledge of securities and securities markets. The authors, including a Nobel Prize winner and a full-time practitioner, offer a balanced presentation of theory and practice as they explain to students the essentials of prominent investment concepts. Just as importantly, they illustrate how those concepts are applied by professional investors. The Sixth Edition distills the growing complexity of the investment environment, enumerating and describing today's various securities and markets in a clear, concise manner and integrating discussions of new investment management techniques.

Investor Protection and Corporate Governance analyzes the impact of corporate governance on firm performance and valuation. Using unique datasets gathered at the firm-level - the first such data in the region - and results from a homogeneous corporate governance questionnaire, the book examines corporate governance characteristics, ownership structures, dividend policies, and performance measures. The book's analysis reveals the very high levels of ownership and voting rights concentrations and monolithic governance structures in the largest samples of Latin American companies up to now, and new data emphasize the importance of specific characteristics of the investor protection regimes in several Latin American countries. By and large, those firms with better governance measures across several dimensions are granted higher valuations and thus lower cost of capital. This title will be useful to researchers, policy makers, government officials, and other professionals involved in corporate governance, economic policy, and business finance, law, and management.
